“Fantastico!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Don't be deceived by the strip mall appearance of this gem. (In case you haven't noticed, all of Kaneohe is one big strip mall!) El Mariachi has a creative menu with skillfully prepared dishes, the staff is super friendly and the place is very clean and reasonably priced. BYOB makes for even more savings for the budget. Try the fish caribe - white fish with papaya salsa and black beans. Mmmmm!

“Decent food and prices”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Food wasn't very spicy so Mexican food lovers may not be thrilled but was tasty and reasonably priced (compared with Hawaii restaurants in general).

While driving to the north shore going back to Waikiki decided to eat mexican food.The next question was where is a mexican restaurant.Check te old reliable GPS and we found this one in the way.We took the gamble and paid off.The service was great the food delicious and the portions,
enough for 2 days.Small family own and there renovating the dinning room.Good luck for them.
I will recommend this restaurant for anybody.
No alcohol at this time only soft drinks.Was told by the server once they have the liquor license.
